Correct, it's about time investment. It took time to run 500+ WZ in order to get geared. Kinda feel jilted. I agree pvp should not be about gear. But BW made it about gear since launch, now twice we have had to "gear up". Also I do not mind adding another level, cause it's progression, but removing the lower level is wrong.

imo everyone should just wear a standard set of pvp gear. no progression, no qq'ing, just face smashing fun.

I'd rather be rewarded for my time (and money) spent. Having the privilege to buy a holographic solstice tree is not rewarding.

In hind sight, I would have started playing Star Wars, oh, about 3 weeks ago, and I'd be a few hundred dollars richer.

Now I have Stockholm's syndrome and must give my abuser more money.

Well 1.6 has shelved my concealment op that I spent quite a lot of time grinding for WH. Admittedly the spec is very gear dependent and can only "crush" lesser geared players. I don't want to be a bandwagon player and respec to heals till they give concealment another chance though, I'm fine playing on alts. Started pvping again on my Guardian, the first character I got to level 50, and have been enjoying it a lot. So overall I say the fact that a lot of grind is now made easy is made up for the fact that now I will be able to gear up my alts much more easily and can play the style I want to play and not just the character that I have invested the most time in.

From what I can tell it is thousands of coms for only a few points of difference between the War Hero and the Elite.

Anyone else think as much?

Agreed, the gear desparity is going away, the pvp matches are fun and more chalanging. 1.6 rules, I love the new WZ alot, i hope BW makes more WZ's that have this kind of engaging play. the only issue is it harly ever pops, i still get HB and NC even more than what i usually do with a few CW and VS in between. I pvped for about 12 hours and it only poped 3 times for me in that whole time.

My classes still aren't full wh but they are much closer and I'm loving it. I'm usually top on all of them since I have pvp'd for a long time but now it feels much better.

Also, and much more important, is that I've noticed matches seem more even. If we can just add in premade matching and cross server then instanced pvp will be set.

I like hypergate. it's a new set of mechanics for pvp.

however, the middle is a cluster*(&^. I think they developed it especially for the lolsmashers. it's very tight in there, like vstar doors w/o the open space to retreat back to. it's perfect for the smashers' instant cast aoe. ouch.

Having put off the war hero body piece grind for awhile (I'd slowly ground out my elite war hero offhand after having gotten the elite war hero mainhand right after it came out), it was pretty nice to get three pieces of war hero and a piece of elite war hero after only one match (had almost capped normal comms and about 2k ranked comms before the patch. No I wasn't make it a point to cap them). Noticed a much bigger difference than I thought I would, and got enough expertise to get two campaign armorings to keep my set bonus, still have decent expertise, and finally have a look I actually like.

Love the changes so far. Only tried the new warzone once. Gonna take some getting used to.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

I like 1.6. It means I can gear up my alts. My sage I abandon cause the old gear grind was too much, this was back before recruit gear was in the game. The same is true of my commando healer. Having to grind bm, then the long trek for wh gear was too much grinding for mere alt. That's why I stopped and only focus on my mains.
